Who is Jayhawk Motorsports
Driven by Passion, Built on Tradition
Jayhawk Motorsports is a student organization within the School of Engineering at the University of Kansas. For over 20 years, students have designed and built award-winning racing vehicles. Each year, cross-disciplinary teams build vehicles to take to international competitions against other universities. The vehicles are judged on a wide variety of criteria such a design, performance, and marketing. Students gain experience in project management, design, manufacturing, testing and perhaps most importantly, teamwork. Jayhawk Motorsports manufactured its first carbon fiber chassis in 1998, and has since become the longest running FSAE team to build a carbon fiber chassis in-house. We also own and operate an engine dynamometer and chassis dynamometer for powertrain development. Since 2012, Jayhawk Motorsports has developed two vehicles per year, one electric and one combustion, being one of the pioneering teams in the United States in the growing electric field. We are driven by the passion of engineering and are built on the 20 plus years of teams before us. Success developed by one racing family, Jayhawk Motorsports.
